Ridiculously good HCS. The second set transitions are truly as amazing as they look. Solid selections that are played loosely throughout. It will do your body good.
One of the best in a year of greats. My favorite HCS ever.
Subject: The 2nd set suite
is awesomely executed, & I can't give this less than 4 stars because of that. However, I'm only keeping the 2nd set. Most of the show is not that interesting or well-played, and the sound of the recording (or possibly of the venue, or the sound system on that night) has a harsh, jarring and unpleasant quality that reminds me a little of Dick's Picks vol. 33 (the sound of which I hate so much that I can't listen to it). This isn't that bad, but I like it warmer than this.

Great find! Excellent sound, and Jerry & Phil came to play. Passes the "Eyes" exam, as do most '73 shows.
Note to Evan S. Hunt -- Say your peace and get out!!! This is not the forum for your inane ramblings. BTW, post-Eyes jam is NOT Stronger Than Dirt.

This is an extraordinary performance in an Autumn of extraordinary performances. Clearly November '73 is a high mark for the band and this show holds its own with the very best from this period. Jay Ashley sound is virtually perfect. This is a jazzy masterpiece! (99 pts)

...To a leaping into the air perpendicular wet dream.
Jay Ashley has a way of transforming these shows of something that a listener listens to into something a listener experiences.
Right from how it jumps onto your back like a new pet monkey until the very last note, and though the performances are not earth shattering orgasms, the sound makeover brings a fresh, a peal spritzer to the ear.
Here Comes Sunshine takes us into the Stratosphere. This is just Jerry in his unexpurgatedly pure unadulterated surf guitar mode, and after that, every song major cooks, breathing in and out pure, in-alterable kernels of golden and pearlescent dew drops. Kaff kaff.
After a red hot tamale' Big River there is a Phil announcement about the Fire Marshall's request to clear the front aisles. And After a great BEW, Bobby asks the crowd to refrain from spitting and then rollicks into a tear-ass Around which ends set one.
What follows is a Row Jimmy starting the 2nd set that will make you cry. It is done to absolute, and oh so well-rehearsed perfection. Jack Straw the same: so beautifully re-captured here to bring epiphany. The bass is amazing and it's much the same on Ramblin' momentarily raising the hair, the eyebrow.
Bobby flubs the opening verse but the band's backup is strong, pulsating a gorgeous universal thematic rhythm. It's effect renders miscues rescues, which pervades it's girth into an industriously savage PITB, and it bounces up and down and in and out and on and on and on and on and after 15 ballast-blasting minutes, pushes and shoves it's way, muscularly, into Uncle John's Band !
and into Morning Dew (Reviewer is thusly rendered speechless). Even with Jerry's lyric flubs this is one of the most crystalline Dews and while putting my dropped jaw back into place they back into PITB thrashing! and back into UJB cache-ing!
GLORIOUS !!! and back into PITB and back into UJB
and Jerry on a mission to Mars filling every quadrant. and back into PITB !Raging! Every note
Life-regenerating ! and then in walks Stella.... Stella Blue and >>Bling<< El Paso and >>bling<<
Ayes of the World! The beautiful ayes. Az Zey say: "The Ayes Have It." and...Into "Stronger Than Dirt" from the late 1960's Clorox laundry detergent commercial: "New Clorox Laundry Detergent Is Stronger Than Dirt!"
This theme winds laboriously and languishingly down into....Sugar Magnolia. Casey Jones.
